blessings

the hogmanay blessing

Pinned to our entry way wall. Tiny, about 7 inches square. Cut from a work in progress because I just like this part.

Beside the coat closet for at six months, maybe longer. One day I'll finish the edges, maybe.

'the blessing of the spirit upon this house' is the first thing you see upon entering our home. An amulet, maybe.

To all of you who read this blog, thank you for giving me a place to say how I feel, to record what I've recently read, to show what I've made. Blogging has made me feel connected and understood.

My very best wishes for a creative 2012 for all of us.

Blessings.

It's been a pleasure to be part of your blogging world this year. Your work brings such inspiration and peace via cyberspace. I can only imagine what it must be like to stand in front of your stitched journals, Jack's quilt or the large scale pieces from the Dream Work post. Those are such a breath of fresh air, a boon to the spirit. Thank you. Happy New Year!

Judy, Many wonderful hours for you with thread, needle, cloth, vision and stitching in the coming year. I read something this morning - just a quick glance over a sentence - it said something about how children, babies, start to perceive - they first notice the edge of an object. so maybe the edge on your cloth has a purpose - and maybe it has remained unfinished for a reason...that is the heart of your work that you share here: a bounty all-ways.

Happy New Year, Judy. Your blog has been such a delight. Your artwork has prompted me to dig out the needle and thread and stitch. Thank you for sharing your art and for always being an inspiring spot in my day. All the best in 2012.
